    The lake is 19.4 ha and at its deepest point in the southeast corner 33 meters deep, the average depth is 13.6 meters. Due to its location at 1,780 meters above sea level (lake surface), it is covered with an up to one meter thick layer of ice for an average of six months a year. In summer it reaches a maximum temperature of 18 ° C. As a bathing lake he is therefore hardly used; The exception is a 10 × 25 meter area on the south bank, which is separated from the lake by a hotel with 3.5 meter high side walls and within which the water is brought to 28-30 ° C by means of heat pumps.
    The Turracher See is fed by a brook on the west bank and marsh meadows. The outflow (75 l / s) takes place as Vorderer Seebach in the north, which merges with the coming from Turracher Schwarzsee Hinterse Seebach to Turrach, which flows north through the Turracher Seitental and finally flows into Predlitz in the Mur.
    As the lake was heavily contaminated by the surrounding tourism businesses, Lake Turracher was the first Carinthian lake on which a sewage system was installed.
    The Carinthian part is now part of the biosphere reserve Salzburger Lungau and Carinthian Nockberge.

    A beautiful lake that is completely frozen over in winter. And is also open to the public. Here you can cross the lake on foot. Or who is out and about on skis. A quad pulls you from one bank to the other.
